Ok. I dropped the tank again. Reconfirmed ground. Did a ground in the gauge as well. Still no change. Then I hooked up my old original sending unit which worked fine before and same result. So it is not the unit since same results. I also tested by grounding the wire between the gauge and the sending unit and it did pop to full so gauge is in order. I am at a bit of a loss right now. The new unit is from Max M. Will call YnZ tomorrow and see if they have any thoughts.
Thanks for the feedback. If any other ideas please continue to pass along.
Ben

So I am about ready to get Blanche in the road.

Finished up the running boards and trim.

Got my speedo back from Pat at Bills Speedometer.
So I was able to finish up the dash. Looks real nice. Chrome is shining! Started with the new hand throttle from Flackmaster. I had to get the others chromed to match!

I have 2 things that I am still working on.
1. Getting my turn signal to work with the LED lights. I went back to the regular bulbs while o research a bit more. Working with Gene at YnZ. All working ok with the standard bulb set up.

2. Gas gauge is not registering. I grounded it yesterday but still not recognizing volume. When I turn the key gauge pegs hard below empty. When I turn it off it returns to empty. I had to adjust the sending unit because it did not fit the tank. I may end up getting a new sending unit as Don did and get the 115.

My goal was to get her running in time for my daughter’s graduation and I did it! My mom wants to drive to the the ceremony.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wives out there!

Cheers
Ben

So it looks like my gas gauge is not working. I pulled the tank down and added a ground wire thinking that my do it but no luck!

Any other thoughts?

Thanks Bob for the post and the phone call. Yes a very tight fit, but i got it in. I adjusted the wires to com in from the underside which freed up some space.
Unfortunately, the new Knob i got must have been adjusted, as now my "L" will be almost on its side, which is unfortunate. I don't think i am able to adjust. feels like the knob is on there pretty solid.

Trying to install the light switch and knob, but running into issue, where the cowl vent is blocking the line-up for the switch and the hole in the dash? I know this was not the case when i disassembled, but I am not sure if i move the vent in the process? The vent lines up and open and closes properly, so I assume not?

I tried at different angles, but no luck. To have the "L" line up proper, I will need to have it at a bit of an angle, but turning away from the vent, but that still does not fit.

Thoughts?

Ok. So turn and test. I turned it a 1/4 and it doesn’t feel much resistance. Will proceed with caution.
